    Package File Format

    Same as MJP here but we don't store flat list hashes, we either use a hash for full path or hash per directory/file depending on complexity and use a minimal perfect hash for lookup.

    A Long-Awaited Check of Unreal Engine 4

    [quote name="LoneDwarf" timestamp="1397672604"]I think pointing out these errors is in somewhat poor taste.  Add in that it was done to further their own goals makes it worse.[/quote] How so? Real world examples are the best kind of examples. Epic even get some of their bugs fixed for free, everyone wins. Still, it highlights as others have said to have SA as part of the development arsenal.

    Is GameMaker any good?

    Wasn't 'I wanna be the guy' or the guy games done in GM? Those things are pieces of troll art. :)

    UE4, CRYENGINE, and UNITY 5: Will it work?

    As far as I see it, with UE4 you're paying for alpha testing although some would argue beta, unless you become a late adopter by which time the license model may have changed. So you're likely to have to pay more than $19 + 5% as in n x $19 + 5% just to make sure you have something stable to release. As for Unity, hard to tell as it's not available yet, but might be stable enough that you'd really only need to pay on month subscription so worth the higher price point. CryEngine? No idea, maybe it will fall in to the same state as UE4 but cheaper, have to wait until May to find out. But if you look beyond the bullet price points. Playing with UE4 at least, maybe CryEngine as well, what you'll pick up with these could be beneficial to go work for some company in the industry, else to create games yourself Unity depending on scale of project and target audience. But as Ashaman said, more than likely you can work with existing tech for a lot cheaper.
